A Compliant, Licensed Platform

The SMART VALOR platform is operated by SMART VALOR AG, Liechtenstein as a currency exchange.

Two things where we are better than everybody else: we build delicious tech in line with regulation.

In only 12 months we built a full-fledged exchange for any kind of digital assets.

Our roadmap: staged roll-out starting with cryptocurrencies and utility tokens, extending offers to security tokens after necessary licenses have been obtained.

On regulatory side SMART VALOR is ahead of the competition: operation of a crypto-fiat exchange in Liechtenstein and non-custodial brokerage business in Switzerland acknowledged by regulators. Application for security token exchange (through Multilateral Trading Facility - MTF) in preparation; license expected 2020.
